Resource Nurse Staffing-Research and Development Company (RNS-RD) is comprised of a team of nurses with over thirty years’ experience in vastly different specialty areas in health care: business, research, clinical and managed care, to name a few. RNS-RD seeks to empower clinicians from all areas of health care to dominate and take charge of their career through collaboration and entrepreneurship. RNS-RD is not a consulting firm. RNS-RD offers easy- to-read, easy-to-comprehend step-by-step DIY guidelines on how to start and operate a profitable, manageable nurse staffing agency. Why DIY? DIY guidelines are economical and drive the business owners to learn the process. According to data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 20 percent of US small businesses fail within the first year. By the end of their fifth year, roughly 50 percent have faltered. This is partly because new business owners are not studying and taking the time to truly learn their market.
